Jofra Archer was taken clobbered all over the park by RCB’s openers in the reverse fixture, but it remains a match-up, particularly against Faf du Plessis who he has dismissed twice in 22 balls. Glenn Maxwell has only single-digit scores in away games so far but the conditions at Wankhede could suit his style of play. Tilak Varma, one of the main contributors with the bat for MI, is expected to feature in the XI after having missed the last game vs CSK.
